Manufacturers of metal parts and components are constantly challenged to minimize the risks of their products rusting, corroding, galling or seizing while in the field.
For years, these businesses have relied on Henkel’s LOCTITE Anti-Seize Compound premium quality products to protect metal parts. The compounds are available in traditional brush-top bottles and semi-sold sticks, and Henkel recently unveiled a new innovation—the brush top tube.
“The new brush-top tubes are unique in market. They allow users to squeeze out every last bit of product from the aluminum tubes, reducing waste as well as potential contamination from brush reinsertion in traditional formats,” says Isabelle Valois, Senior Marketing Manager at Henkel Canada Corp.
The new LOCTITE anti-seize brush-top applicator—available on the full line of anti-seize compounds—offers quick and easy one-hand application in a compact, portable size. The innovative tube makes for easy dispensing of anti-seize lubricants, providing great coverage, especially for touch-ups and maintenance. It’s quick and easy to apply and the compact 7 oz. tube size makes it convenient to take on the go.
The brush applicator is one inch wide—offering a wider brush than typical brush-top bottles. The new applicator is available in four formulas: Copper, Silver Grade, Heavy Duty and Marine Grade.
Metal free formulations
A growing concern for all types of industries is the dispersal of “heavy” metals such as lead, nickel, zinc and others into the environment. Henkel’s LOCTITE anti-seize lubricants are metal-free formulations offering the same performance as traditional products.
The nine metal-free formulas including marine and food grade. All are formulated for severe industrial environments, and protect against high temperatures, heavy loads, chemicals and fluids. They offer easy assembly and disassembly of slip-fit and threaded joints, and reduced friction and wear on critical operating equipment.
Henkel also offers a wide variety of penetrants, greases and oils for lasting, general- purpose lubrication or specific applications. The products:
• Protect mated metal parts;
• Extend the life of expensive fittings;
• Reduce downtime due to seizure;
• Reduce part breakage.
